Note: The SAS Integration Technologies Windows client includes software developed by the Apache Software Foundation. For more details, see the Apache Web site at http://www.apache.org.
Windows clients (and Windows servers) that need to use strong encryption need additional support that is supplied through SAS/SECURE software. SAS/SECURE software supplies the support necessary to enable SAS Integration Technologies to use encryption algorithms that are available through the Microsoft Cryptographic Application Program Interface (CryptoAPI).
If you have also licensed SAS/SECURE software, you should install the SAS/SECURE client for Windows. You can install the SAS/SECURE client from the SAS Installation Kit.
When executed on the client, this program installs the tcpdcapi.dll file that is necessary for the IOM Bridge for COM to use the CryptoAPI algorithms to communicate with the IOM server. The file is installed to the shared file area on the client.
